FROM DANIEL GADE
Once we win this war against COVID-19, I will fight to regain our record economic growth, reform a healthcare system that puts patients first and put a stop to business as usual in Washington.
Small businesses are the backbone of the American economy and because China lied they are suffering. We need to safely get people back to work while following the advice of White House health experts. In the Senate I will ensure China is held accountable for their actions.
Republicans have lost an opportunity to win on healthcare. That ends now. My priority will be to create a system of care that protects people with pre-existing conditions, enables free markets and uses competition and innovation to drive prices down. Virginians deserve to have their Senators help fix these hard problems, not avoid them.
Too many politicians like Mark Warner go to Washington to line their pocketbooks, not to serve. My first bill in the Senate will be the Stop Insider Trading (SIT) Act. The SIT Act will force members to put their assets in a blind trust and deny them communication with their stockbrokers. Senators are elected to serve people, not themselves and Virginia’s fed up with Warner.
